Artful Dodge Discussion

Kem on casual torpor sundial

Hey I found a cool tech: Artful Dodge You can use this on some of your big creatures to swing for a ridiculous amount of damage and maybe kill earlier than normal.

I like Immolating Souleater over the Dragonauts, but you have to have 19 life for the combo to work. Dispel is a must, at least in the sideboard, and I personally would use either Slip Through Space for the card draw, or Artful Dodge for the controllable Flashback use. Just my two cents. I have a decent (pauper) Kiln Fiend deck that I modified slightly for a Modern tournament last week and went 2-1.

Snacrifice on Wydwen The Budget Gal(<15$)

lilgiantrobot Thanks for the suggestions!

I hadn't realized Consume the Meek had gotten so low! I don't mind barter/innocent blood, but I'd rather run targeted removal like Murder or Tragic Slip. However, you got me thinking about Drown in Sorrow which might get cycled in.

I don't really see Rise from the Tides being win-con, even if I replaced all the auras with instants/sorcies, since EDH always feels so mass-removal heavy. Same with the pike That's down to taste though.

A lot of the aura choices are based around doubling-up on saving Wydwen, to make her really annoying to remove(because either they pop one of the totems, or something like Shade's Form, or you just dump the mana and bounce her to hand.)-and remember, those 'return to play' enchantments can be layered on to opponents creatures, then killed with Tragic Slip or Extinguish All Hope to bring them back under the player's control.

Artful Dodge is amazing and I can't believe I forgot it though, so it's getting put in for Vampiric Link. Dropping Dismiss into Dream for Drown in Sorrow since I realized I don't have too much that targets anyway(it's from when I was fooling around with the build to decide what to do).

I'm not sure I like the amount of auras included. They work counter to Wydwen's biggest strength, her return to hand ability. Cards like Open Into Wonder, Artful Dodge, Slip Through Space, Taigam’s Strike, & Shadow Rift don't have the lasting impact, but can also fuel the addition wincon of Rise from the Tides or Runechanter's Pike.

Consume the Meek is another good, cheap sweeper, and an instant. Its listed at nearly .$50 here but I'm seeing a lot of $.20 copies on tcgplayer. Barter in Blood/Innocent Blood doesn't hurt the player either, b/c there's so few creatures and Wydwen can save herself.

Tethys on U/R Cryptic Bloo

I see you ditched Thing in the Ice  Flip altogether! How has this build been working out for you?

BTW, I just cited both you and your deck in my version, Thanks again for the idea. I'm glad to see that your version keeps getting more refined. I haven't had much time to test out mine recently because I have been working on the Neo Bloo Shadow build.

P.S: Artful Dodge has been working out really well in my version of this deck. I think it is definitely worth testing.

Sloth_Enthusiast on BUDGET U/G Infect

Heirarchs, shocks and fetches are expensive, and by the looks of it you are trying to keep it budget. Also, why are you running 10-10 Forests and Islands, when you only have four blue cards? I would suggest 4 Yavimaya Coast, 3 Islands and the rest Forests. Wild Defiance is three mana, and MAYBE a side option for long-con games. I suggest some Rancor instead of Predator's Strike because of Ichorclaw Myr's ability synergy with trample. And because you are in blue, I suggest maybe 4 to 6 control spells, some suggestions being Spell Pierce, Mana Leak, Counterspell, Negate, Censor or Unsummon. Artful Dodge might be a good inclusion for some garunteed damage.

Skeraan on Energy Turtle Tribal (9$)

Yeah I'm sorry, I don't know how to "register" the changes except by writing an update. I replaced 2 Evincar's Justice with 2 Pestilence and changed the sideboard: took out 2 Artful Dodge, Pestilence, 2 Shimmering Wings, 2 Silburlind Snapper, Turn Aside and put in 3 Into the Roil, 3 Pack's Disdain and 2 Scarab Feast.
